Clad 5 Jrijtory 



We, the class of 1951, are now completing twelve years of long 
hard work. It seemed confusing at first, but we finally caught on to 
the new customs and ideas. 

Our Freshmen year we were forty-two in number. The class officers 
that year were: President, Wayne Houser; Secretary and Treasurer, 
Carolyn Harmon; Reporter, Helen Brown. Also that year we were 
honored by having Carolyn Harmon Chosen as "Miss Union Hi". Several 
of our members played on the basketball teams. 

Forty enrolled as Sophomores. Eight of our girls were chosen 
waitresses for the Junior-Senior Banquet. Our officers for that year 
were: President, Ralph Thomas; Vice President, Wayne Houser; Sec- 
retary and Treasurer, Ann Lantz; Reporter, Helen Brown. 

In our Junior year we honored the Seniors with the annual Junior- 
Senior Banquet which centered around the Merry-Go-Round at the Circus. 
Twelve of the members were initiated into the Beta Club. Class officers 
were: President, Ralph Thomas; Vice President, Helen Brown; Secretary 
and Treasurer, Marie Sain; Reporter, Huitt Reep. 

In our Senior year we number Thirty-four. Class officers are: 
President, Bobby Carswell; Vice President, Wayne Houser; Secretary 
and Treasurer, Marie Sain; Reporter, Helen Brown. 

During the summer Billy Kiser and Beth Warlick were chosen as 
mascots. Before beginning the fall term our rings arrived. Also work 
on the annual had begun. 

Now we have reached our destination, Graduation' We have waited 

long and patiently for this hour, but now that it is actually here, we are 

grateful, but are reluctant to say farewell to our school, faculty, and to 

our classmates.

ClaJJ Song, 



"IN UNION" 

By: 

Edith Sanford Tillotson 

Of school, and home, and nation 

We sing today with pride. 
We give them acclamation. 

We'll serve them, side by side. 
Our help they're daily needing. 

That help we'll now begin, 
Where one might miss succeeding, 

"In Union" all can win. 

Chorus : 

Let nothing ever alter 

The pledge that is our song. 
Where one alone might falter, 
"In Union" all are strong. 

Our fields of corn and cotton, 

Of grain, and new-mown hay, 
Are pictures unforgotten 

That in our hearts will stay. 
Though future tasks may call us 

Across the country's length, 
Wefll sing, what e'er befall us, 

"In Union" there is strength. 

To school, to home, and nation, 

We pledge both heart and hand, 
For truth and inspiration, 

These words forever stand. 
Their history we treasure, 

Their precepts are our pride, 
We'll serve them, in full measure, 

"In Union", side by side. 

Copyrighted in 1951 by D. Ward Milam 



We are indebted to Mr. D. Ward Milam for writ- 
ing the beautiful music for our school song. The class 
of 1951 is proud to have chosen it for their class song, 
and we greatly appreciate the interest Mr. Milam has 
had in us.

ClaJJ Prophecy, 



"For I looked into the future, far as human eye could see, saw a 
vision of the world and all the wonders to be. " 

One day, while taking a stroll down a mountain path, I saw a strange 
object lying before me. I picked it up and realized I had found a crystal 
ball. Wishing to learn the future of my classmates at Union, I sat down 
and gazed into it. The first vision I saw was the Editor of a large news- 
paper. I recognized it to be Ralph Thomas, while Beth Helms and Hazel 
Elmore were the talented reporters. 

Looking closely, I saw Bob Carswell departing for Washington to take 
up his duties as Senator, and Carolyn Harmon was leaving on the "Queen 
Mary" for England as Ambassador. 

The next vision I saw was a 'large art museum where Helen Brown 
was displaying her paintings. As this passed away, I saw Bill Watts, 
owner of the Duplan Mill, talking to his personnel manager, Harold 
Conne r . 

The scene quickly changed to Rose's Dime Store where Marie Sain 
was the efficient manager. The building adjoining it was a Beauty Salon 
in which I saw the owners, Earlene Self and Shasta Sisk. 

I next saw Huitt Reep standing in a corn field at the State College 
Farm, displaying his new Hybrid Corn; 

This time the scene changed to Africa. I saw a long safari making its 
way across the jungle. There were Huel Slaughter, Ralph Huss, and 
Tommy Royster on a big game hunt. Then I saw Bob Seagle and Hal Hill 
co-owners of the Union Garage and were successful new car dealers. 

The scene flashed to New York. I was looking at Bill Warlick pitch a 
no-hit game for the Giants. He was having trouble striking out Joe Kiser 
who was short-stop for the Brooklyn Dodgers. I saw a crowd gathered 
about a wrestling ring. Taking a quick look, I saw Harry Ritchie billed as 
"The Lincoln Marauder", versus Buddy Whitner, "The Curly-Haired 
Te rror . ' ' 

The scene shifted to Woman's College at Greensboro where Emily 
Bolinger and Ann Lantz were the Deans. Betty Wade, Ruby Scronce, 
Eula Kate Houser, and Frankie Bass were teachers at Union. I saw 
the interior of a beautiful office. Seated at a desk were Ruth Champion 
and Jean Heavner, the able secretaries. 

While I gazed into my ball, I saw a jet-plane making a crash-landing. 
I looked intently and saw the pilot, Glenn Reep walk away while his stew- 
ardesses Betty Leatherman and Prue Neal followed him. His co-pilot, 
Graham Richard, had a broken arm. 

I wondered if my future would be revealed. I gazed closely and saw 
a long ditch. Who was at the other end working industriously with a 
shovel? Why me, of course. 

Wayne Houser, Prophet

Statistics of the Graduating Class of Union High School 

'Way back in 1939 when most of us started to school we had very little idea of the out- 
come of the mental and physical training that the Union Hi would give us. Thus we graduate, 
and this is ourselves as we are: The outcome of our training will be expressed to you by our 
works in the future. 

Senior girls average height is 5 ft. 5 in. , with the shortest 4 ft. 11 in. , and tallest a 
towering 6 ft. , and corresponds with an average weight of 127 pounds with all feminine hum- 
anity based tenderly in bootees in sizes from a minature 4 1/2 to a 9! 

The Senior boys ' average height is 5 ft. 10 in. , with the shortest 5 ft. 1 in. , and the 
tallest a dizzy 6 ft. 1 in. , and our weight ranges from 125 to 185 lbs. on a solid foundation 
going from size 7 to an enlarged 11 shoe. 

Denominations run in order: Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist, and Reformed. 

As for Politics we believe in no certain party - - but the best and most able person. 

Those beautiful brown eyes take the majority, with gray, blue, green, and hazel follow- 
ing in order. 

Brown hair tops most of our noggins with blonde, black, and wonderful red hair capping

ClaJJ Poem 



Our Work Has Just Bugun 

We have come to the end of twelve long years 

of lots of work and fun, 
But the main part of life still lies ahead -- 
Our work has just begun. 

Now we will strive to reach a greater goal, 

a greater goal by far. 
We will try to live by the Golden Rule, 
And we will hitch our aim to a star. 
We will Remember our leaders later on 

whenever our goal is won. 
We must remember at the present time -- 
Our work has just begun. 

In life we may lose some good chance, 
but there will still be more to gain. 

We will remember the saying we have heard 

"Comes sunshine after rain". 

There could be a scientist spring from our midst, 
maybe a famous one, 

And he will agree when I tell you -- 

Our work has just begun. 

Class Poet -- 
Huel Slaughter

The Union High School Beta Club was formed in the fall of 1937. It is a 
leadership - service organization, and its purpose is the promotion of honesty, 
service, and leadership. Membership is based on: good mentality and char- 
acter; creditable achievement, and commendable attitude. Students must meet 
these requirements to enter. 

The Union Beta Club publishes monthly the school paper, ''The Trail 
Blazer, " with each member doing his part well. 

East year, the Beta Club had as its project the completion of the First- 
Aid room. To raise money for this, refreshments were sold at basketball 
games, and a womanless wedding was given. 

This year's Beta Club is made up of twenty-two members. Ten of these 
are new members and were inducted into the Beta Club in a very impressive 
candlelight service given at assembly period. 

The Beta Club officers for 1950-1951 are: President, Carolyn Harmon; 
Vice President, Joe Kiser; Secretary, Ann Lantz; Treasurer, Beth Helms; 
Reporter; Helen Brown. 

The Union High School Beta Club will always strive to be of service to our 
school and community.
